Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at the Beard House.


Table of Contents: A Literary Dinner Featuring The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, 7:00 P.M.
Evan Hanczor, Egg, Brooklyn, NY; and Goatfell Farm, Oak Hill, NY

Widely recognized for his commitment to sustainable agriculture at his lauded restaurant and farm, chef Evan Hanczor may be less well-known for his literary passions. But that’s about to change: indulge in oysters, Champagne, jazz, and the Roaring Twenties when the celebrated chef debuts his thematic dinner tied to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic novel The Great Gatsby. Guests can expect plates like West Egg and East Egg Deviled Eggs; Cold Fried Chicken with Salmon Roe and Ale Aïoli; and Montauk Golden Tilefish with Summer Squash and Saffron. Be sure to like us on Facebook to catch our LIVE chat today at 4:30 P.M. with Hanczor!
